Cons
This solution is only compatible with a limited number of storage arrays, including Pure and Cisco Hyperflex.Microsoft Exchange online mailbox backups would be fantastic.Since it is an evolving product, there are lot of frequent releases which require upgrades to be done every other weekend.The support team could do a better job. Sometimes finding the correct person is cumbersome and time consuming.Physical RDMs on virtual machines could be a bit easier to configure and plan out.The rack mounting instructions did not appear to be correct, but we were able to overcome it.I would like to see Cohesity have the ability to do a file level restore from a Windows server, which is storing data on dynamic disk.A little more documentation on standard faults would help, as new features are being released quite often.

Make sure you check your backups on a regular basis. Backups do get missed with this tool, for whatever reason.I would like to see the pieces that they have put in the web only to be put into the thick client sitting on the desktop client.The way the filtering goes, if you filter on your view, there is no indication that you have made a selection.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Ensure that you understand the per TB licensing model. Also, Exchange backups are not native to Cohesity and require Kroll.Cohesity came in at the best price.Cohesity came in at the best price. Setup was included and done in half a day.Licensing is per node and per protected terabyte. You will also pay 10-15% annually for support.If SQL is in heavy use at your location, I would highly recommend narrowing your PoC testing to Cohesity and Rubrik. They will be competitive on pricing with each other, so really put them through the paces.The ROI is huge. Not really measurable at this point, but the price of the unit was a fraction of what a couple hours of downtime could result in.
